Polish official: Belarusian president takes revenge on his compatriots

The head of the Prime Minister’s Office has accused Alexander Lukashenko of taking revenge on his own people following a series of operations aimed at Belarus’s Polish minority.

On Friday the president of the Union of Poles in Belarus (ZPB), Andzelika Borys, and the head of the local branch office in the western city of Lida, Irena Biernacka, were charged in Minsk with “incitement of hatred.”

Michal Dworczyk said that he considers it to be shocking fact when “the dictator from the eastern border” takes revenge on his own citizens, persecutes them only because they are of a different nationality in this case it is the Polish nationality, as thefirstnews.com report.

Poland is trying to provide its help to Poles in Belarus as much as possible. Polish official added that currently it is one of the government’s priorities.

On Thursday, charges were also brought against other members of the ZPB leadership, Andrzej Poczobut and Maria Tiszkowska. Anna Paniszewa, another Polish activist from Brest in western Belarus, also faces criminal charges.
